Biography of Marilyn Lott
I've loved poetry my entire life beginning with poems my parents read to my brother and me from the Jr. Classics.
My husband and I travel all over this beautiful country and I enjoy writing poems about my travels. We have twenty acres in Montana with such beautiful sunrises and sunsets. I enjoy taking pictures with my digital camera.
I have written hundreds of poems for John McCornack's web pages. John sends me a page with the wonderful pictures he takes and I write a poem that will snuggle into the page. What a challenge that is for me!
My poems have been published in True Love and True Romance magazines as well as several anthologies. Recently my poem Arches National Park (posted here on Poem Hunter) was published in a text book for children ages 15-16. The company is Pearson Learning and based in Singapore.
I love to write about the simple life and how faith and hope is always there and that tomorrow is a fresh new beginning.

Marilyn Lott Poems
A Child’s Mind
The world is wide with wonder For everything is new A child’s mind is like a sponge Or like a flower sipping morning dew
3 White Ducks
Three ducks pecked around In a garden one warm day They wore beautiful coats Of white feathers to display
A Chat With The Lord
Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord I tell Him just what has been bothering me I know He understands and He will see
A Common Man
He works so hard every day Doing pretty much what he’s told The days slowly turn into years As his life carefully unfolds
A Cat Named Frank
He is a beautiful kitty cat Frank is his name And around the barnyard He has risen to fame
A Boy In Hope
There is a place called Hope, Arkansas Where a little boy grew up No one ever dreamed that one day His name would be on a special cup
A Cowboy Song
It looked just like a cowboy song Cows meandering along the fence Sun dropped down and sent colors Across the sky with a bit of suspense
The 13 colonies were the beginning Of the beautiful country we know Folks gathered from other places To find a new place in which to go
Do you ever watch the sunset And just sit and think about things Just you and the sky and darkness Giving your thoughts some wings
A Fractured Soul
Did you ever get so weary That you think you can’t go on? You reach inside yourself To find a part that may be strong?
A Child’s Snowy World
Oh what fun when it snows It’s a little boy’s delight To tromp around in snow knee deep His world so crystal and white
A Buffet To Remember
It was a buffet to remember With a lovely Hawaiian theme Food so fresh and flavorful It was truly a food critic’s dream
A Date With God
I’m so thrilled about my day And I’d like to share it with you It’s Sunday once again I have a date with God, it’s true
A Child In Red Dirt
He was just a little kid In a kid’s kind of world Examining the places Where the red dirt swirled
A Common Man
He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds
He sweats and agonizes and toils
To put food on the table each day
Keeping family fed and clothed
And he does it his own unique way
